You can now post your pics from gimp.

I ported like 80% of my krita plugin to #gimp. it's alpha but does the job.

single py file you just install in ~/.gimp-2.8/plug-ins on #linux
(make plugin executable)

not macOS compatible. Windows untested atm


#opensource #mastodon #mastoart #toot #python


I'm trying it on Windows 7...

Don't like the popup to tell me to create an account, that doesn't have an OK button.

I assume that after I enter the Mastodon Server URL and press authorize I would get a dialog asking for username/password? Because it seems to hang at that point.

@paynekj it takes a moment. no more than a minute or two. did it bring up a web browser.


After redirecting the stderr and stdout I can see an error if the url contains htps://: undefined global url. Without that it opens a browser window, but that just times-out. On Windows running from the command line doesn't get you the output of the print statements. See for how to redirect stderr/stdout

@paynekj I'm redirecting mine to a log file. I'll let you know what I find. At the moment I'm seeing an SSL issue.


released an update on github.

* fixes the missing url bug you pointed out. thank you.

*added an ok button to the popup.

* removed all other popups. For some reason these popups freeze under window (despite working on mac and linux).

* added logs. logs are created in the .gimptoot folder

these fixes might not be enough (there's an SSL issue), but could you please give it a try. thank you.

@spaceotter That seems to work. I was already logged into Mastodon when I added the URL and it took a couple of minutes to authorize, but it is successfully tooting pictures now.

@paynekj 🙌 🙌 yay. Hopefully I can get some further updates soon. I'll publicize any updates here.
